The network has revealed the identities of the 22 Racers who will be racing around the world in pairs for $1 million when Season 30 premieres in its new date and time of Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 8PM ET/PT.

The teams, who each have a pre-existing relationship, will include Big Brother's Season 19 power couple Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf, as previously revealed.

CBS has announced teams will also include IndyCar drivers Alexander Rossi and Conor Daly, retired NBA All-Stars Cedric Ceballos and Shawn Marion, X-Games champions Kristi Leskinen and Jen Hudak, nationally-ranked debaters Henry Zhang and Evan Lynyak, and competitive eaters Joey Chestnut and Tim Janus.

"This edition boasts some of the most competitive and accomplished teams to ever take on the Race," the network teased.

The 11 teams will begin the race in Washington Square Park in New York City and immediately travel to their first destination, Iceland, where they must traverse a large canyon high above the Geitargljufur River.

At every destination, each team must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical. When tasks are completed, a team can head to the next destination. The team to finish legs in last place will gradually be eliminated until there is a winning pair.

The Race's 30th season will cover 10 countries, 21 cities and over 29,000 miles, as teams compete to win the $1 million grand prize.

Phil Keoghan is reprising his role as host.
